Easy bag. Working nearby so on way to work pulled in to field entrance next to pillar. Great views when up embankment to trig but even better views when driving down the road to the west.

Bagged during cycle past with Wozza. Decent pause on climb up to top of Harby Hill. Superb views to the North in the late May sunshine as long result of the Northwesterly airstream. Will it ever warm up.

I liked this one in its elevated roadside position. perhaps a bit vulnerable to collapse having looked at the field side. The adjacent tree doesn't look happy either, with a huge canker on its trunk. A good view over the Vale of Belvoir.

Spotted this whilst driving past on a diverted route. Field entrance nearby to pull into. Pillar is at top of banked hedgerow. Too dark to determine what the views are like.

Joint Visit with Carole. Stands high on banking at side of road with very hand field wntrance parking. Pillar is in good condition although some of the banking is alipping away exposing the foundations. Still retains an original indented letter plug.

A nice easy roadside Trig, discovered whilst in the area doing a spot of geocaching and trigpointing. Bagged just before we went and found the nearby Bluebell Wood cache

Hi, I'm Big Fish and I am the main Trigpointer and Geocacher from the Fishteers. I now have my own name and so I am back logging all the Trigs that I found with the Fishteers, I am logging the find on the same day that I found it with the Fishteers.

Easy to see from the road but difficult to get close enough for photos of the spider and flush plate. Still who minds tramping through a few nettles!!! Very overgrown since iainmac's visit last year.

Happy birthday, dear trigpoint! This pillar was completed on 25/10/1948 at a cost of £8.19s.2d. Pillar in good condition, complete with all metalwork, though the base is gradually becoming undermined. At top of bank by side of road, with good views over the Vale of Belvoir.

On N.E. side of sunken road at good height above road. Looking west into Vale Of Belvoir was impressive in setting sunlight which cast long shadows across the valley.

The trig stands on an old field boundary above the road and is getting undercut. Trees get in the way of the view from the trig itself though you can see NE over an attractive manure heap. Take the road downhill and you do get a great view over the Vale of Belvoir.

Located next to the road up a slight bank. Heavy tree cover made getting a lock difficult. Good view out over the Vale of Belvoir. My first logged trig point so have given it a 5 as nothing to benchmark it against.
